Thank you for bringing your child, Candice, into our community. I humbly ask that you grant her peace, healing, and happiness. Candice suffers from malnutrition; I ask you to nourish her body and her spirit. I beg you, take away the pain that the simple act of trying to eat causes her. Candice also has a heart that bears mentioning for two reasons, one figurative and one literal. The part that is figurative is that her heart that is filled with love and goodness, and we thank you for that because Candice enriches our lives. However, Candice's literal heart suffers from rhythms that are alternately too fast and too slow. She has pain that radiates from where her heart is. Please relieve these problems; please heal her.
Candice is a young, vibrant, spirited woman who finds the strength to give her love and support to others, despite the severity of her own struggles with Lyme disease and the havoc it has wreaked in her body for several years. Give her courage, hope, and most of all, freedom... from pain, disease, and all of the troubles that weigh heavy on her soul. She has big plans, and as her friend I look forward to the day when she is healed and can set her dreams in motion.
In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit,
Dear Candice: you are already a survivor. Everyone you extend your heart to immediately adores you, with good reason. Your sweetness and concern resonates beyond the pain we all know you feel. Thank you for being a friend to me; a light during a dark time. I wish only good things for you.
